This is our darkest roast of our cocaine-to-coffee project from the Cauca region in Colombia. We believe it emphasizes everything we love about Colombian coffees with the rich, developed tones of a classic dark roast.

Every single farmer who contributed to this lot used to grow coca for cocaine production and now grow coffee, instead. They are making higher wages than they received while growing coca and are slowly freeing their homes and valleys from the presence of fear and bloodshed that came with the cocaine industry.

When you drink these coffees, you are contributing directly to the continued eradication of coca trees. Our project partners in Cauca are continuing to provide support for more than 500 producers in the region who have replaced their coca plants with coffee, and more join the movement every year. When you drink these coffees, you are helping us to make better coffee for a better world.
